There was no arbiter appointed by the SODELPA Management Board to look into the validity of MP Lynda Tabuya’s presidency for the Nasinu Constituency.

This was confirmed by Ms Tabuya.

Ms Tabuya was re-appointed as Constituency president in September following the Nasinu annual general meeting, which was challenged by some party members.

At the October Management Board meeting it was decided that an arbiter would be appointed to investigate the matter.

Yesterday Ms Tabuya said, “it did not reach that stage.”

She said the newly formed SODELPA Leaders Forum invited her to talks to try to resolve the issues through alternative dispute resolution.

At the forum she was told that the leaders wanted to deal with the grievances through negotiations rather than the constitutional process for the party’s sake.

“After much discussion, and without prejudice, I was asked to conduct our Nasinu AGM again and I agreed, as well as I withdrew our formal complaint against a previous member of the working committee for interfering into Nasinu affairs, Bani Kawale,” Ms Tabuya said.

“I did this out of my desire to get rid of the distractions that are coming from within the party and to focus on the work of setting up branches and registering members in Nasinu as well as serving our people through our visitations and community projects.”

The Nasinu AGM that will be held today will be the fourth conducted this year.

It will appoint office bearers for the constituency as well as the election of two management board members.
